Dirigo Labs Accelerator

Every successful startup story starts with great people.

Magic happens when you start with great people and add world-class mentorship, a topically relevant curriculum, capital investment, and a coworking space where teams can innovate and grow.

That’s why we bring the best and brightest entrepreneurs together to join one of our 16-week accelerator cohorts in the winter. Apply to our accelerator program.

Once you are selected to join a cohort, you will be matched with a curated temporary board of advisors from our mentor pool who fit your startup’s unique needs. During the 16-week accelerator, you will have a home base at Bricks Coworking & Innovation Space and will participate with your cohort in a targeted curriculum covering a wide range of meaningful content, including customer discovery methodologies, revenue models, sales, employment law, fundraising, and pitch refinement.

Additionally, you may sign up for office hours with our entrepreneur-in-residence, join a “Beers with Peers” brainstorming session, attend ecosystem networking events, and compete for a cash prize in our Demo Day pitch event.

Each cohort member will exit the accelerator with connections to founders, advisors, and service providers, a solid knowledge base, a flexible and discounted coworking space membership, and guaranteed investor pitch opportunities.

Wondering what we’re looking for? Generally, the big three:


Are you receptive to advice and willing to learn?


Do you have a strong business model and team?


Does your startup have potential for rapid growth and revenue generation?

We’d also like to see startups who have achieved one of the following milestones:

Don’t meet those criteria but still think your venture is compelling?

Apply anyway; chances are, we will think so too!

Applications for our next cohort are open now!
